Ru has set up a truly world class operation here.
Communication proir to coming was excellent, any queries I had were answered promptly and completely, even my delayed flights were not a problem for Dani and the helpful staff.
When I did arrive I was greeted by a beautiful resort where everything was layed on. When I say everything I mean it too, accommodation (naturally), the pool always warm and welcoming, pickup from Liberia and drop off elsewhere as I was continuing my holiday in Costa Rica, The food that was prepared for us every morning and lunch and a couple evening dinners was always delicious and extremely fresh, and the other evening restaurants were amazing. Along with fresh snacks, and my personal favourite fresh coconuts in the fridge to drink after our surf sessions. The mid week massage was incredible, Crystal really knows how to relax a tight surfers muscles. I even tried a few of the yoga classes which focussed a lot on stretching and recovery of your surfing muscles. And I haven't even started on the surf coaching.
The coaches were an amazing bunch of people! All super friendly and really enthusiastic about what they were doing. I had done a bit of surfing before so was looking for a place to help me develop some new skills and progress past the current plateau I had reached. I was teamed up with Jessie and Fran who did an awesome job of conveying the technical aspects and video analysis of my surfing to help me push past my current limitations. The self analysis of footage with the girls was something I have taken with me, and on a couple of subsequent surfs, have still had Jessie in the back of my head asking if I was hitting my targets!
Overall this was an amazing experience and was well worth the trip all the way from New Zealand. I only hope I can get back again soon. For anyone even considering coming to surf simply, stop considering and lock it in. You won't regret it.
Thanks again guys
